Infamy Aflame EP

After storming out of the gate with their first two releases, Brutally Deceased‘s Grave worshiping Dead Lovers Guide and Chaos Inception’s excellent, Nile busting The Abrogation, Czech label Lavadome productions went quiet for a bit. However, they are back in business in 2014 with new releases from Chaos Inception and Destroying Divinity in the works and to kick of 2014, they have an EP from veteran Slovakian death metalers Perversity, following up the bands 2011 fourth album, Ablaze.

Like Ablaze, Perversity‘s sound is rooted in Polish death metal but has a little off kilter, left field sense of structure. Imagine a ‘weirder’ Vader or as I mentioned in my review of Ablaze, Yattering. It’s a competent mix of technical death metal and a old school primitiveness, that’s sold but hardly a must have record, especially as a mere 17 minute EP.

But it still gets Lavadome’s juices flowing for the upcoming year with 5 songs and one outro. The songs lurch and rumble with ample heft and twangy complexity and there’s even a surprising orchestral flourish to end the second track “Angel of Prostitution” to break up the burly, staggering riffs, throbbing bass lines and gruff vocals contained in the “Goddess of Maggots”, “Vermin” and “Incest of Flesh”, all delivered with a nice punchy, but primal production. Penultimate track “The Accuser” has a more controlled lurch and pace with a Morbid Angel like crawl which is promising before the nice little orchestral outro closes the solid little EP out.

    I loved Ablaze. Can’t wait for this one.
    Oh how I would do anything for Yattering to make more albums. Those guys could do anything your ears have never heard and I know they still can. Yattering come back to us! Genocide album; intro and next track, Schism, amazing shit. Damnit, now you’ve got me wanting Yattering even more! Is there some Govt. Metal petition we can sign? Great Review Thomas!
